When sharing a romantic evening in Thunder Bay find your special path to Melizana. Great big platters ideal for sharing, end with a dessert named Vesuvius, excellent service accompanies your time in this alcove away from the busy traffic beyond the charcoal walls.

I went on my birthday and was served by Jeff. Very friendly. I had the souvlaki, and the Moussaka and was given a free dessert. The portions were very big, and I got to bring it for lunch the next day. Will go back again

Our family recently enjoyed supper at Melizana. Our group of 6 chose a variety of main course items including steak, pasta seafood and Greek specialties. We all agreed that the food was great. We would recommend this restaurant.

Melizana features ‘Mediterranean Cuisine’, with a variety of dishes most of us would identify as ‘Greek’ or perhaps ‘Italian’, but whatever the reference, the food we ordered was very good. Prices are in the moderate range, with most entrees between about $18 and $30. The server brought us some fresh warm bread with garlic butter, which was very good but... More

We've eaten many times at Melizana and always get a great meal; the meal however was not as tasty this past week when we went for supper (the garlic chicken breasts were lacking greatly on garlic - very bland tasting). As per other people's reviews, I agree that the establishment is way to dark; they should add provisions for the... More

As a frequent diner in the city, this is one of my favorites. Everything is good. Always enjoy it although I do find the lighting a little dark and drab but the food and service outshines it!

The food was great, I just dont sitting in a cave when I eat. The interior is way too dark for me and my family. Depressing. Asked the waitress to open the blinds and she said they were fixed and couldnt be moved. Ugh. Is there a reason you shouldnt see what you are eating? Wont be in a hurry... More
